Welcome to our crew!

CLRC is a juniors and masters rowing club based on Crystal Lake in the town of Crystal Lake, Illinois. Our boathouse is located in Naoki Kamijima Park.

We practice year-round, with spring, summer, and fall seasons on the lake and indoor conditioning over the winter.

Our Juniors program is appropriate for students in grades 8-12 and our Masters program is available for all adults. Rowers must participate in a Learn to Row session or have comparable experience to join out crew. 

Our athletes are coached by USRowing certified post-collegiate rowers. Our club is a member of USRowing and  follows all Safesport guidelines, and is an affiliate of the Crystal Lake Park District.
